Using WikiTree’s DNA Features in Your Family History Research
Wed, March 2 2022: 19:00 UTC
WikiTree is one of the Global family Trees available online that works collaboratively to have an accurate, single family tree. You may have heard of WikiTree, but did you also know that WikiTree does DNA as well? WikiTree has very robust DNA features which can identify testers who may match you in the DNA connections section of an ancestor's profile. We will work the features and show you how to further your family history research using WikiTree and its DNA features.
